Back in May, the Division of Natural Resources started enforcing a no swimming policy from the shoreline at Pleasant Creek Wildlife Management Area in Taylor County but park officials said they are making sure it's an issue residents won't have to worry about again.

The beach has been under construction all summer and a lot has changed.

"We'll have picnic tables, we're going to have bocce courts, we have a nice volleyball court set up right on the lake; really scenic area to come and bring your family and kids. We will also have handicapped access available that will take you down to the waters edge," said Jim Browning, of Tygart Lake State Park.

The Tygart Lake Beach and the marina will open in the spring. It will hire seven new employees to manage the beach.
